Shri Vigneshwar Vinayak Temple In Ashtavinayak

This temple is located at Ozar. In this temple, the Lord Ganesha idol has the statues of Riddhi and Siddhi on either side. “Vighna” means obstacle due to unforeseen causes. Vighnasur was a demon created to destroy prayers organized by King Abhinandan. The demon also started destroying otherVedic religious acts. Lord Ganesha defeated him and so was called the “Vighnahar” or “Vighneshwar”, hence leading to the name of the temple.

Built around 1785 C.E., the temple faces the east and is surrounded by high, thick stone walls. One can walk on the wall. The main hall of the temple is 20feet long and the inner hall is 10 feet long. The idol, facing east-ward, has its trunk towards the left and rubies for eyes. There is a diamond on the forehead and some jewel in the navel. Idols of Riddhi and Siddhi are placed on the either side of the Lord Ganesha idol. The temple pinnacle is made of gold.

This temple is located just off the Pune-Nashik Highway, in the town of Ozar. The temple is situated on the banks of river Kukadi. Ozar is 182 km via Mumbai-Thane-Kalyan-Bapsai-Saralgaon-Otur.
